As the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), Bryan Stevenson has worked for decades on behalf of the incarcerated. He’s helped reverse decisions for 115 wrongly-convicted death-row inmates. The EJI has also taken on researching and memorializing lynching victims.
Recently, a private foundation belonging to Bain Capital Co-Managing Partner Jonathan Lavine and his wife Jeannie stepped up with a $1 million donation -- money that, Stevenson says, will be a game changer.
Lavine and Stevenson join Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss philanthropy and the EJI’s recent achievements.
